While Miles practices his graffiti art with his uncle, he’s bitten by a radioactive spider, and we all know what that means.Meanwhile, a breach between alternate dimensions brings other “Spider” heroes, including “Spider-Man Noir” (Nicolas Cage), Peter Porker, AKA Spider-Ham (John Mulaney), Spider-Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld) and an older, sadder Peter Parker (Jake Johnson) into Miles’ world. Together, they must team up to stop the Kingpin (Liev Schreiber) and Doctor Octopus (Kathryn Hahn) from destroying the multiverse.“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” is produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman directed from a screenplay by Lord. The film is produced, in association with Marvel, by Avi Arad, Amy Pascal, Lord, Miller, and Christina Steinberg.Read original story ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ Sequel Lands Spring 2022 Release Date At TheWrap
